I’m trying to get away from being a “reviewer” of albums or art in general. This sites not really about that anymore, rather a place to share special things out there in the massive swirl oniine. So with that said, have an adventure with the new works from Stuart Thomas.
Mountain Range can’t just stop with his own amazing talent for delivering the wonderfully cerebral aesthetic of leaves crashing within the mist of memories. He went out and linked his visions to Sun Glitters, the great Ole Torjus, and Teen Daze offers a smooth, cozy ride within the parameters M.R. sets up every time he releases something. There is no one out there doing it quite like this, and the online popularity of this roster solidifies the original version into a great EP. And it just sounds so damn good.
2012 was an interesting year for Holly and me. We learned we’d become parents, due date late January 2013. Our son’s name is Cove, he now is the proud owner of years of collecting music, and a few choice instruments. My first album came out under Nomadic Firs, which had so many weird, and exciting moments. With those two big items I give you this random list, which is a collection of Artists I heard getting played over and over again in our house. These are some of the folks that took me out of my own creations, and allowed me to just be a fan of music again. Something I honestly misplaced, and the reason I do this site. So cheers to all of you for making this last year fun for us, we appreciate it.
Okay Okay Okay, Stuart Thomas is an absolute high-five fest of an artist. His work rains down the most furious acid trips. He’s infectiously enhancing the world with skittle like balloon gravy, the kind you see bubbling over the sun scattered haze of those peak performance memories. Mountain Range sent me this tune about 20 minutes ago. I’m still choking on my crackers. He’s a magical son of a dreamer, bringing wizardry on the rest of us to no end. My god, will a giant label and web site please give him his major props already. The new remix is for Swansongs’s “Silhouette,” from their new E.P. called Sill Life.
